|1 tbsp||butter (to grease muffin pan)||15 mL|
|24||small Wonton wrappers*||24|
|pinch of salt|
|1||medium Ontario apple**, cored and diced||1|
|2 tsp||ground cinnamon||10 mL|
|1/2 cup||whole grain granola (blend of whole grain oats & wheat flakes)||125 mL|

|1/4 cup||1/4 cup raisins (optional)||50 mL|
Before you begin: Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C).
Lightly grease muffin pan with butter. Insert 2 wonton wrappers into each muffin cup, overlapping them to form a small “flower” shaped cup. Bake for only 3 to 4 minutes or until edges are lightly golden, remove from oven and cool in the pan.
In a small bowl, beat eggs and add pinch of salt. In a separate bowl, mix diced apple and cinnamon. Begin assembly of cups by adding 1 tbsp (15 mL) of the apple mixture to each wonton cup. Follow with 2 tsp (10 mL) of the beaten egg, ensuring it does not flow over the sides of the wonton cups. Top each cup with 2 tsp (10 mL) of granola, followed by 1 tsp (5 mL) each of walnuts and raisins (optional).
Return pan to oven and bake for 10 minutes or until filling is firm to the touch. Cool for a few minutes before removing from pan.
